That theme is the art and science of creating human beings. Some of the similarities between the novels is that in both Frankenstein and Brave new world are desperate for having a perfect society where there are no issues. Another similarity between Brave New World and Frankenstein is that in brave new world the society was artificially created and were controlled by the drug soma. While the same thing occurred in Frankenstein but in this novel a monster was created in a way where he can control his emotions. Paradise lost is also similar to Frankenstein and Brave New World because in each book has a person who created a society.
Tyrell was a genius in the field of genetics and neuro-sciences. He wanted to create synthetic life. He had the God-like power to create life and determine when it dies, just like Victor. This is one of the many similarities between Frankenstein and Blade Runner. It only scratches the surface with them both.
She birthed the first race of humans and gods called Titans. To all gods and human alike, she was the supreme goddess. The Titan Prometheus was also a Greek god who was a clever trickster. He stole fire from the workshop of Hephaestus and Athena on Mt. Olympus and gave them to humankind as well as the mastery of metalwork.
The presence of biblical ideas can be seen throughout the Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. Whether it be Victor Frankenstein acting as god as he creates life or the comparison of the creature to the fallen angel or devil, the bible has a strong partnership in the novel. In chapter nine of volume two, there is once again an allusion to The Bible as the creature embodies Adam, from the creation of man in genesis two. The creature can be seen asking Frankenstein for “a creature of another sex”(170) to “free [him] from the misery”(170) he feels from being so lonely. This request the creature is asking for from Frankenstein mirrors the same desire Adam had in the second story of creation in Genesis two.
Victor the Titan In Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, an inquisitive scientist challenges nature by creating a new species. Through the use of organic resources and natural philosophy, Victor Frankenstein constructs a human-like being. Mirroring the scientist, Prometheus curiously strives to improve the human population by seeking knowledge and enlightenment. Both heros, one tragic and the other romantic, experience growth and endurance throughout their journeys. A modern version of Prometheus, Frankenstein aspires to create life but must suffer the consequences.
She uses imagery to show the kind of reaction that Frankenstein had on his creation’s awakening and the kind of words he used to describe his very own creation. His description of the creature is used to show how judgemental humans are against other people who are not similar to them though they do not even know the other being. Frankenstein’s foreshadowing of the future with his creation in it, also is used as an example as to how humans discriminate others and assume the worst based on appearances. Shelley’s use of both of these strategies gives the readers a first hand look into how judgemental and discriminating humans can be to those that are slightly or majorly different to them, and it allows the readers to see why this way of being and thinking is not acceptable. Her way of writing her story serves as a lesson to those who read it and as an example about what is wrong with the way Frankenstein judged his own creation and why it is not right to discriminate or isolate another individual or group based on their appearance or any
Robert Walton’s character gives the reader a foretaste of what Viktor Frankenstein will do because their values are so much alike. In Walton’s letters to Mrs. Saville, he reveals a lot of his own characteristics. The ones that define him include narcissism, inexperience, and spirit of inquiry. He pushes forward without maturity and remains in a driven mindset, which we happen to see again. In Frankenstein’s character we come across qualities that resemble Robert Walton.
he author of Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw, and the author of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, both integrate the theme of creation into their novels. Henry Higgins the creator in, Pygmalion, and Dr. Frankenstein the creator in, Frankenstein, utilize new and innovative techniques to transform their victims into a new creations. They attempt to play the role of divine creator by making breakthroughs that are immoral and unprecedented. In the process they neglect the needs of their victims and focus on self-interest. The Monster in the novel, Frankenstein, and Eliza Doolittle in the novel, Pygmalion, are similar in the way that they both regret their creation and feel rejected by their creators; however, Eliza is able to be integrated into society
Frankenstein and his monster do seem to be very similar, like a father and a son. Technically, they could be considered as such since Frankenstein is his creator. Even without that reasoning, it is clear that they share similarities. I consider them to be alike because they are both dramatic with violent tempers, they are obsessive, and they can be unreasonable. I disagree that they share the exact same personality, though.
In Chapter 15 of Frankenstein, the author compares the monster to Adam (the first man) as well as comparing Victor to God. I believe that Frankenstein is not as much a commentary on the bible, but rather on the nature of man. In Frankenstein, Mary Shelley compares the monster and Victor to biblical figures in order to relate that everyone is capable of moral good and evil. As we see in the novel, the monster is much like Adam in that he desires companionship, he is made in the likeness of his creator (a man), and he eventually turns to evil. Victor also compares the monster to Satan.
